NEoN 2019

NEoN

4th-10th November 2019. RSVP
Various Locations, Dundee.

A tide of change is sweeping across the globe - from immigration to the rise in nationalism - socio-political landscapes are increasingly subject to crisis. Unparalleled events have elicited an unprecedented response as activists and community groups mobilise.

This year the NEoN Digital Arts Festival will ask; How do we protest differently in a digital age? Now more than ever, we need to learn from the ways artists use digital technology to better understand how to engage with and react against the world around us.

Alt-w | Resono

Resono Cupar

Available on vinyl and download now.

This sound art and music project took place in some of Scotland’s most interesting acoustic spaces. The concept was to compose, perform and record compositions specifically for a series of particularly reverberant locations using impulse response digital audio technology.

Resono was performed inside Cupar's massive fifty eight metre high concrete silo, built in 1964 by the British Sugar Corporation, and in the nave of the Sir George Gilbert Scott designed St. Mary's Cathedral in Edinburgh of 1879. Both exceptional spaces for sonic experimentation.

Alt-w | Requiem for Edward Snowden

Requiem for Edward Snowden Album Cover

Available on vinyl, CD and download now.

This audiovisual performance piece is based around the actions and decisions of whistleblower Edward Snowden. It focuses on a number of themes relevant to life in the 21st century; loss of faith and security, the hacking of digital media, invasion of privacy and personal sacrifice.

"...beautiful reminder of what we all need to be fighting against."

Snowden revealed that we live in a world in which the privacy of our daily routines is completely compromised. Exploring the consequences through electronic sound and acoustic instrumentation, the gestures of the performers will be analysed and interact with real-time visuals.
